Put label in colorbar

Asked by Ting-Yu Chueh on 18 Sep 2019
Latest activity Edited by Ting-Yu Chueh on 18 Sep 2019
I put the label ('Power (dB') in my color bar, and the code is below:
ylabel(a,'Power (db)','FontSize',16,'Rotation',270);
However, the label is too close the colorbar (see the figure).
Can anyone help me? Thanks!
Also, how can I to put the different title for each subplot.

The label object should have a position that you can edit. The rotation of 270 rather than 90 moves it inside the tick labels for some reason, but you can edit e.g.
hColourbar.Label.Position(1) = 3;
to change the x position of the label.

JR, thanks.
But, I prefer to revrese the orientation of label, which rotate 270 degree, and with more space between unit and lable.
